Moments That Matter: lesson 2: topic 1: exposure triangle

Assignment upload from Erin (sent via email)

Wow, finally feel like I have a bit more understanding of the whole exposure triangle! The window analogy was terrific.

had a lot of fun playing with the settings and learnt alot, although I have a compact camera it did let me change the settings:)

Pic 1 – was indoors at night and finally I can take an indoor photo!
settings iso 400, aperture F4.5 & shutter 1/7

Pic 2 – taken traveling in the car, tinted windows on an overcast day
settings iso 400 ap F 4.2 shutter 1/105

Pic3 – the same as 2
iso 400 ap F4.5 shutter1/34

Pic 4 – in car
iso 400 ap F4.5 shutter 1/30

  1. I’m glad it’s starting to make sense. And can I just say that Sienna is super cute!
    My first suggestion is that – particularly with the first one – but a bit in images 3&4 as well – you should increase your ISO a bit more so you can increase your shutter speed. The first image is not as sharp as it could be and that is most likely due to camera shake. If you increase your shutter speed to 1/60 or 1/100 you should eliminate that movement.
    Also we’ll start to cover this more later but start watching out for what is in the background that might distract from your main subject – the lovely Sienna. In the first one my eye was drawn to the small brown box on the table. It’s a little thing but can make a huge difference to your photos.
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Okay will increase iso and watch distractions. Thanks:)
